Three bacterial strains, designated MT1T, RW10T and IpA-2T, had been isolated previously for their ability to degrade chlorosalicylates or isopimaric acid. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis demonstrated that these bacteria are related to species of the genus Pseudomonas. Analysis of the results of DNA-DNA hybridization with several close phylogenetic neighbours revealed a low level of hybridization (less than 57%). On the basis of phenotypic characteristics, phylogenetic analysis, DNA-DNA relatedness data and chemotaxonomic analysis, it is concluded that these isolates represent separate novel species, for which the names Pseudomonas reinekei sp. nov. (type strain MT1T = DSM 18361T= CCUG 53116T), Pseudomonas moorei sp. nov. (type strain RW10T = DSM 12647T= CCUG 53114T) and Pseudomonas mohnii sp. nov. (type strain IpA-2T = DSM 18327T= CCUG 53115T) are proposed. © 2007 IUMS.
